Airtel is Offering Up to Rs 100 Rental Discount for Six Months on Postpaid Plans

While prepaid tariff plans continue to get better every day, Airtel is trying its best to retain the postpaid users. The Sunil Mittal-led company is now offering up to Rs 100 discount on the Airtel Postpaid plans. This rental discount is valid for six months. Apart from the base Rs 399 myPlan Infinity Postpaid Plan, all Airtel postpaid plans are eligible for Rs 100 rental discount for six months. This rental discount brings down the price of the monthly rental, allowing customers to stay in the postpaid.

Bharti Airtel Postpaid

With the Rs 399 Airtel myPlan Infinity postpaid plan, Airtel is offering Rs 50 rental discount for six months. So the price of the Rs 399 plan will be Rs 349 for the next six months excluding the taxes. And Airtel is providing Rs 100 rental discount on Rs 499, Rs 799, and Rs 1199 postpaid plans, meaning the monthly rental of these plans come down to Rs 399, Rs 699, and Rs 1099, respectively.

And the best part is the rental discount is valid for six months, not for one month or two months. With this new development, Airtel is offering unlimited voice calls without any FUP including roaming calls, 100 SMS per day, free Amazon Prime subscription, 30GB data with data rollover scheme at Rs 399 (excluding taxes). Including taxes, the price of the Rs 399 goes around Rs 442.


But still, Airtel’s postpaid plans are not even close to Airtel prepaid plans. But they do offer additional perks such as Amazon Prime subscription, and the data rollover scheme is icing on the cake. In contrast, Airtel’s prepaid plan of Rs 509 now offers 1.4GB data per day, unlimited voice calls, and 100 SMS per day for 90 days. That said, the overall data with this plan is 126GB, but without data rollover scheme.

Also, we’re not sure about the rental discount offered by Airtel on the premium plans such as Rs 1,999 and Rs 2,999. We’re expecting it to be the same Rs 100 discount.

Airtel is actively improving its postpaid plans to retain the subscriber base. In today’s age of prepaid plans, there’s no reason for having a postpaid connection as prepaid plans are much better than postpaid. Airtel is the leader when it comes to the postpaid segment in India, and this new Rental Discount offer will surely help Airtel to retain the base.

Airtel is not allowing port-in customers into the prepaid plan. They’re saying there’s some issues when migrating to Airtel prepaid. So, we’ve to get postpaid plan first (499 plan with 100 Rs discount which equals to 399), after 3 months we can switch to prepaid.

This 6 months discount and Bonus 10GB data (for 399 – Rs50 plan) is applicable for NEW customers only. NOT for existing customers. Existing customers can threaten by PORT message to get the benefits…
